Recognized as one of the top Employee Rights Firms in California

Lee Feldman is the founding partner of the Feldman Law Firm, the predecessor of Feldman Browne Olivares, and senior partner of Feldman Browne Olivares, APC. Mr. Feldman formed the Feldman Law Firm in 1998: a firm devoted exclusively to protecting the rights of workers and obtaining compensation for harms caused by their employers.

The firm has since evolved into one of the top Labor and Employment law firms in the state of California.  For six (6) straight years the Feldman Browne Olivares firm has been ranked at the top of the U.S. News & World Report’s Best Law Firms list, earning the highest “Tier 1” ranking. Each of the firm’s partners have also been named to the Best Lawyers in America list, which recognizes the top 1% of lawyers in various fields nationwide.

Two of the firm’s partners, Lee Feldman and Gina Browne, have also been named by California’s leading legal newspaper, the Daily Journal, to its annual list of the Top Labor & Employment Lawyers in California. Only approximately 25 lawyers representing employees are typically named to the list. The Feldman Law Firm is the only California law firm representing employees to have two partners named to the list. Mr. Feldman has been named to the Daily Journal Top Labor and Employment Lawyer in each of the last six (6) years (2013-2018). Ms. Browne was named to the list in 2013 and 2018.

Our Mission

Feldman Browne Olivares routinely and fearlessly takes on the largest California employers

Most of our clients come to us feeling powerless and victimized by the wrongful conduct of large, often unaccountable corporations. We pride ourselves in changing that balance of power through aggressive litigation. While we cannot guarantee any client a particular result on their individual or class action claims, the Feldman Browne Olivares Firm does promise our clients the most zealous advocacy we are capable of providing. We will pursue claims against any employer, no matter how large or powerful and fight aggressively to achieve the best possible result for our clients. And we litigate every case like it’s our only case!

About Our Practice

The practice of labor and employment law encompasses both wage and hour class action claims, as well as individual and class action claims for discrimination, wrongful termination, and violations of the medical, pregnancy, and disability leave laws. Each of the lawyers working at Feldman Browne Olivares’s Century City/Los Angeles office has experience in prosecuting claims on behalf of employees, against employers both large and small, across the State of California. Our Los Angeles Labor Law attorneys also have experience in representing workers in claims for denial of medical and disability leaves of absence, wage and hour violations, civil rights, and workplace harassment, discrimination and retaliation.

As California labor and employment attorneys working for the Feldman Browne Olivares Firm, we handle employee claims for violations of California labor laws, including Whistleblowing, Overtime Pay Violations, Tips & Tip Pooling Violations, Wages, Meal and Rest Break Violations, Class Action Lawsuits, Wrongful Termination Lawsuits, Pregnancy Discrimination, Workplace Harassment, Discrimination, and Retaliation, Disability Accommodations, and Violations of the Medical, Pregnancy, and Disability Leave Laws, such as the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA and CFRA). Class action lawsuits are an area of particular emphasis at the Feldman Browne Olivares Law Firm. As labor and employment attorneys, our class action cases involve claims for denial of overtime, meal and rest breaks and illegal taking of employee tips by employers and/or their agents (supervisors) and violations of the medical, pregnancy and disability leave laws.
